Curious to see your thoughts on it,Cindy.

I decided to wait for it to come out on DVD as I don't like to be a sobbing mess in the theater. Even the trailer makes me teary, so ... yeah, DVD for me.

I did hear the ending is different from the book. I hate when they do that, but kind of hoping for the better.

at least for now I'm not planning on seeing it. Not only do I not want to be a sobbing mess in the theater, but I hate the fact that the ending was changed so I'm boycotting. LOL

So who has watched the movie? I did!
What was your reactions? For those wanting to wait until you can watch it in the comfort of your home due to sobbing - VERY WISE IDEA! I SOBBED uncontrollably. Very beautifully done!
What were your thoughts on the movie? They changed up the brother's story some... I don't think it was the best idea - but can see why they did it. His story seemed to get lost though and not make sense really.
They lost the guardian ad. but gained the mom's sister. EH - Did not impact one way or the other.
Family dynamics were done very well and followed the story nicely.

Yup - they changed the ending. Sad So I bawled of coarse but I think the original ending really had an impact on the entire story like no other. I am pretty bummed about it, because the message from the original seemed to be lost. Yes, it was traumatic and sad and WOW - but the original was done that way to bring a new perspective on things. So even though I LOVED the movie... I think that I have mixed feelings because of what they did in the end.

Overall - are you glad or sad you watched it? I am so glad I saw it. Can I say WOW! Tug at my heart and just WOW. They did a fantastic job!
